Track Name: A Year Ago
So I would wonder about those phantom pains
And our phantom faults
But all we are is collections
Of wounds into which we add more salt

A year ago today I'd have told you
My thoughts were my friends
Now it's the other way around

On the night that I turned ten
My father spoke to me
He said "Son, you're halfway through your life."
It was a joke, but to what degree?

A year ago today I'd have told you
I would soon be leaving
I didn't know where I belonged
Stuck between two meanings
My brain lay dormant for too long
There was no use believing
Thanks for proving me wrong
Track Name: Mermaid
Walk, if you dare, out to the ocean
The waking waters dance around your tanline toes
Look back to me, repeat our omen
If we both drown here, it's okay; no one will know

I'm not one to have regrets
But I stuck it through despite your apathy
And now I wish I'd stayed afloat
But dragging me down seemed to be your specialty

I can't pretend I didn't see it coming
It was almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy
I was so scared that you would fall right out of love
And then you did

I'm in the same situation now that I was in back then
Be nice if she'd just tell me how she wanted things to end
For once, an honest answer without trying to be my friend

I'm not one to have regrets
But I stuck it through despite your apathy
And now I wish I'd stayed afloat
But dragging me down seemed to be your specialty
Track Name: Burdell
Life rolls by with ease
Through our Sunday stream
It seems a little low, don't you think?

My newborn summer heartbeat
Keeping out of harm's reach
To each his own; I've moved on

She's a blatant thief
She steals her fire from the sun
But she's a saint compared to me
Me and everyone else

In this empty room
I'm at odds with what's not in bloom
Her perfume is what keeps me alive

Life's within my reach
It's even affected my speech
To each his own; I've moved on

She's a blatant thief
She steals her fire from the sun
But she's a saint compared to me
Me and everyone else

I'm at odds with what's not in bloom
Track Name: Featherlike
Outside, in the rain, I don't remember how to talk
My fear of friendless has once again gotten the best of me
Ruined something beautiful by giving up too readily

Outside, in the rain, I'll stand right here until it's dark
It's like that feeling when you forget what you were about to say
Lost myself again, but something tells me that I'll find my way
